No one is all that into babes who shave their heads, I understand that. Most of you can barely tolerate short hair. So last week's battle, which I thought would be a fun departure from the norm (sorta like an actress shaving her head), turned out to fall kinda flat, with the minimal responses still siding with Charlize as being hotness of the buzzcuts. This week, instead of thinking about mutant turtles or dancers (since the studios already f*cked me on that one with the rescheduling of the STEP UP: ALL IN flick), I thought we could consider INTO THE STORM as subject fodder and talk about some storm babes.
Diane Lane has been rocking the hot girlfriend thing for so many years, it's hard to think of her as anything else. Doesn't mean I didn't have trouble processing her wanting to be with Wahlberg, who is 6 years her junior in real life and while movies have flexibility with the casting of their actors, she seemed so out of his realm in THE PERFECT STORM, that I didn't buy her pining for her fisherman lost at sea. The movie as a whole, however? Still blows me away with its intensity. Wish it got more credit for being so awesome.
Before she showed us her tits on "Shameless," before she was tainted by the peen of that Counting Crows dirty hippie dude, before there was much depth to Emmy Rossum, she was Jake Gyllenhaal's lady in THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW. Her first big role and she's gotta be that screaming damsel in distress. I'm so happy that Fiona Gallagher came along for her later.
I first really noticed Moon when she was the pilot in EIGHT BELOW, that sled dog movie which recast a Japanese scientist as the blonde Paul Walker (the dude never got any real respect and he's touching in the movie, if a bit ill-cast) and moved the time frame from 1958 to 1993. Still, if there's a good reason to make so many changes from the true story to the filmed one, it's to see Bloodgood rocking the ice gear.
Which babe would you most like the weather a storm with: Diane, Emmy or Moon?-span>
